Review: Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner Goes On Smoothly With Precision and Affordable!

One can never enough of eye liners and that is including myself. This time I was searching through the shelves for an affordable eye liner at Guardian. A real quick pick-up to be used the next day and I found Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner. It’s been a while since I have used eye liner from Maybelline and I was skeptical about this.

My current preference is to look for liquid eye liner, water-proof, precise application and easy to use. This Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner pretty much fulfilled what I was looking for.

Maybelline Hyper Gloss Liquid Liner in Black Applicator

It comes in a long triangular tube weighing at 3grams. Though it looks like any typical liquid eyeliner, I didn’t bother much about it. I was very happy that it didn’t come with felt applicator. I do find that felt applicator doesn’t transfer the product well and the application may not be as smooth. Brushes like Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner will be better as they are much easier to maneuver.

Maybelline Hyper Gloss Liquid Liner in Black Swatch

The shade I have picked is black and through the swatch, I fell in love with how precise this eye liner could go. The key to achieve such precise application is to scrape the liquid by the rim of the tube then apply and just pick more liquid from the rim if you need more. The brush is quite thin and could easily make the flick towards the end of the eye liner.

The eye liner finishes off glossy but it is not as ‘hyper’ glossy as from it’s name. Here you would be able to see how precise I could go with the eye liner and the application can be very clean without much fuss. The brush is indeed soft and didn’t irritate my skin. While applying the eye liner, it could go smoothly and dries pretty quickly.

Above all…

This eye liner has everything that I was looking for except for one. Though on it’s packaging it is stated that it is water-proof, this eye liner can be easily removed by water. Therefore, it isn’t as water-proof but having to say that they are smudge-proof, YES. I have not experience any smudging while having this eye liner on during the day or night. My quick grab was a wise expense and I can’t complain much because this eye liner was very affordable. I have been using this for 3 weeks and I did not experience any irritation. Definitely recommend this for any eye liner junkies!
